With the advent of digital technologies, more and more people are using the internet, and millions of people have their own mail and Google accounts. Is there any difference between the two? A Gmail account is a free type of Google Account and used as an email address mail ending in @gmail.com. From your Gmail mailbox, you can access Google Docs, Google Sites, and Google Calendar. If you have a Gmail account, you also login into other Google Applications like Maps, Picasa, and Blogger. On the other hand, a Google Account refers to the username and password used in logging into various Google applications like Maps, Sites, Docs, and Search. Google Accounts don’t necessarily end with “@gmail.com”, it can be any other email addresses like one ending in “@yahoo.com” or “@aol.com”.
When managing your Gmail Account, it is a relatively easy process involving changing your name, removing dots from your email, changing your email address, changing or resetting your password, clearing Google Drive space and increasing storage. Changing your name on your Gmail Account is relatively easy following these steps: login to your Gmail account, click ‘settings’ on the page’s top right corner; click the ‘accounts’ and ‘import’ or ‘accounts’ tab; click ‘edit info’ in the ‘send email as’ section; add the name you want to be shown on your messages; and click ‘save changes’ at the page’s bottom part. Changing your Gmail email address is only possible by signing up for a new one, and once you are signed up for a new address, you can just transfer your contacts and emails from your old address to the new one. You can change your password or have it reset if in case you forget it, or when it is used to access many Google products such as YouTube and Gmail by following these instructions: sign into your Google ‘My Account’; choose ‘signing into Google’ under the ‘sign-in & security’; choose ‘Password’; sign in again if you see a prompt to sign in; enter your new password and select ‘Change Password’. In order to recover your account, you’ll be asked some questions for you to confirm your account and an email will be sent to you.
